The process of standards development is reviewed using the "Criteria for the Periodic Testing of Nuclear Power Generation Station Protection Systems" as an example. Areas considered include the need for a standard, the requirements of a standards document, draft preparation, and the obtaining of consensus and approval. Some of the problems of the consensus process are described. Responsibilities of the engineering community are reviewed.
